Clearer skin starts now: bring the four contributing factors of acne under control.

The MediBac Clearing® system works to treat, clear and prevent adult acne while addressing the needs of adult skin. Most products and treatments for acne are designed for teenage skin, making them too harsh and irritating for adult acne sufferers. MediBac Clearing® controls acne without compromising skin’s integrity, which means skin is clearer and healthier.

how it works

Dermalogica’s MediBac Clearing® system is formulated specifically to treat adult acne. Each product, with its unique acne-fighting and clearing ingredients, is designed to be layered upon the skin to provide around-the-clock, maximum control of the main factors that contribute to acne.

I like this product but need further guidance

By 

from Uk

I was given a sample of this from a salon that uses dermologica. I have very dry sensitive skin everywhere apart from my chin which is oily and I get lots of spots. I have used this product only on my chin and it's been great at drying out the spots I already have but it has also drawn out some large spots. Will this stop if I continue to use this product? Some guidance would be great!

Amazing product

By 

from Manchester, UK

I've luckily never suffered with bad spots until recently where I had a really painful breakout around my mouth and chin which had lasted about 3 weeks, trying all kinds of different products but they wouldn't go. I saw results with this product after the first use and within a week they've faded and are almost gone. This product is genuinely fantastic and worth the money as you only use a small amount when applying! Lovely, so happy with it :-)

This product is a bomb!

By 

from Houston, Tx

My esthetician gave me a sample of this and I fell inlove with it! This is so effective for me. I have an oily and acne prone skin, everytime I use this left my skin with no breakouts. And this is not drying up my skin.

Definitely making it worse

By 

from Haverhill, MA

I was so excited to try this product. I have great skin, except for my chin, which breaks out quite frequently. I read the reviews and saw that it works for many people and I was hoping that would be me. This is absolutely making my skin worse. It is agitating the acne and making it larger. Every night that I put it on, I wake up with FAR worse skin than I went to bed with. I know that you gotta give some things time to work, but it is so bad, I won't use it another day! I just hope I can return it!

gentle but didn't work

By 

from NJ

I had particularly stubborn adult acne and this product just didn't do it for me. Sorry :( Didn't irritate though, so that's a plus.

Old Faithful!

By

I use as a spot treatment or in trouble areas. Not daily just when the occasional breakout forms or my skins looking dull. Love this product. I can always rely on it in a skin emergency.

Works for me!

By 

from Minneapolis

I had my doubts. Because no clearing gel I've tried before as done anything at all. This clearing gel I dab a little before bed on a zit and witching 2 nights of doing this, it's gone or very faded. I'm really impressed at how well it works for me. I tend to get acne around my mouth and on my chin. I love this stuff.

  • Q:

    Is this product safe to use while pregnant?

    • CUSTOMER CARE

      A:

      Hello Lisa,

      Thank you for your interest in Dermalogica. Please do not use this while pregnant due to the Salicylic Acid. You may like Breakout Control. Breakout Control is an acid-free spot treatment that is non-drying. However, it is very effective. Apply a thin, clear layer to breakouts. Use it under moisturizer, morning and night.

      Kind Regards,
      Bernadette

  • Q:

    Hello. I started to use this product like 10 days ago. I don't have so much acne, but wanted to start with salicylic acid to avoid any acne at any time. Now I have so much breakout and it started after using overnight breakout control. Can it promote acne, is it only in the beginning? What should I do? I want to go on salicylic acid due to its benefits, but now my skin is pretty bad

  • Q:

    Why can a moisturizer not be applied over top? Should this be used as a spot treatment or can I put it on my entire face, avoiding the eye area?

    • CUSTOMER CARE

      A:

      Hello,

      This is a hydrating gel. There is no need to apply moisturizer on top since it hydrates the skin on its own. It should be applied to areas with acne only. If you have a full face of acne, you can apply it to the entire face.

      Kind Regards,

  • Q:

    I've been using Overnight Clearing Gel for months but I just realized I may have been applying it incorrectly with my other Dermalogica products. Can you explain the order in which I should be applying these products after cleansing? I currently use MultiActive Toner, Active Moist, and Overnight Clearing Gel after using Precleanse and Special Cleansing Gel.

      Hi Sam,

      Thank you for your interest in Dermalogica. You can use Overnight Clearing Gel alone at night. Apply either toner and follow with Overnight Clearing Gel.

      During the day, you can use Breakout Control or Clearing Mattifier over toner and under SPF.

  • Q:

    I am using the special cleansing gel along with the powerbright line to treat post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation. I still get breakouts, can I add the overnight clearing gel to my routine? I am also experiencing some dryness and I am typically oily. Any recommendations are greatly appreciated. Thank you.

      A:

      Hi Dana,

      Thank you for your interest in Dermalogica. Overnight Clearing Gel can help to reduce breakouts. Breakout Control is a spot treatment that can be used morning and night under serum and moisturizer. You can also use Daily Microfoliant (daily) and Charcoal Rescue Masque (once or twice a week) to brighten Post Inflammatory Hyperpigmentation and to prevent future breakouts.
